How long do batteries in motorized shades last?
Batteries in motorized shades can last for years with proper care and maintenance. However, the average lifespan of a battery is only about two to three years. The lifespan of batteries for motorized shades depends on a variety of factors, including the type of batteries used, the frequency of use, and the size and weight of the shades.
Often, the lifespan of a battery is directly related to the quality of the battery itself. Cheaper batteries may only last a year or two, while more expensive, higher-quality batteries may last three to five years+.
Rolli batteries last 20+ years with proper care. Each charge holds 2 years and can be recharged with a microUSB. Long microUSB chords can be purchased for under $10 to recharge your Rolli battery.
What type of batteries are best for motorized shades?
There are several types of batteries that can be used for motorized shades, including: alkaline, lithium, and nickel-cadmium.
Alkaline batteries: These are the most common type of batteries used for motorized shades and are known for their long lifespan and reliable performance.
Lithium-ion batteries: These batteries are often used in high-end motorized shades and offer a longer lifespan than alkaline batteries, but they are also more expensive.
Nickel-metal hydride batteries: These batteries are similar to lithium-ion batteries and offer a longer lifespan, but they are not as widely used in motorized shades.
Lithium batteries are more expensive than alkaline batteries, but they last longer and perform better in cold temperatures.
Nickel-cadmium batteries are the most expensive option, but they have the longest lifespan and can be used in a wider range of temperatures.
